Today, their Majesties attended the 'Cervantes Award' ceremony held at the Alcala de Henares University on the outskirts of Madrid. The prize is one of the most regarded literary awards in Spain and Latin America, and is granted annually to honour the lifetime achievement of an eminent writer in the Spanish language.
The award is named in honour of the Spanish author Miguel de Cervantes, who is best known for his satirical novel, Don Quixote. This year, the Cervantes 2014 Award went to the 84-year-old Spanish writer, Juan Goytisolo.
Today, Queen Letizia looked ravishing in red, wearing her bespoke Felipe Varela shirt dress that she premiered last year during a State visit to the Netherlands. The wool crepe dress features an oriental floral embroidery, stitched in ten different shades of red.
Letizia carried a new folio bag, the Adolfo Dominguez 'Aspen' leather wristlet clutch (€169). The sleek, flat leather clutch features a large detachable wristlet and silver hardware finishings. It comes with a discrete front pocket and interior one, for storing away keys, cards, and trinkets.
She also debuted a new pair of red Ayres snakeskin leather pumps from Magrit.
The style appears to be bespoke, however I found this off-the-shelf Magrit 'Brigitt' pump rendered in the same snakeskin leather:
Letizia finished the outfit with her ruby cabochon dangle earrings.
Next week, the Queen has another busy schedule. On Monday she will again join her husband to pay tribute to the victims of the Germanwings air crash disaster. Mid-week she will deliver the Queen Sofía Royal Disability 2014 awards. Letizia will finish the week at Zarzuela Palace and meet with various audiences.
